One of the most famous of the Native American "Holy Men" is Frank Fools Crow. He was born on the Rosebud Reservation in 1890 and lived his entire 99 year life in South Dakota. Gary Enright, Director of the 1881 Courthouse Museum in Custer, says Fools Crow was one of the most famous of the Native American spiritual healers in this week's Images of the Past feature.

South Dakota Magazine managing editor John Andrews stops by Dakota Midday to talk about the latest issue. From creating an ethic of thoughtfulness to gathering the Spiritual Places of South Dakota, Andrews gives listeners (and readers) an editing room glimpse into the inner workings at South Dakota's premiere magazine.

"An Anxious Age"

Where those churches once defined the liberal consensus of the nation, they have nearly disappeared from public life, and in their place have risen strange new beings.
